Where did it go?
13 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was one of the most original made-for-TV and Halloween movies ever made, starring Rue McClanahan and the Muppets ... two very capable entertainment superstars. To date, I have never seen this piece re-run. And yet I've seen Frosty The Snowman as voiced by Burl Ives ... what, 10,453,619 times? This is really GREAT theater, very entertaining, with elements for both the kids and for the adults.

In this picture, Rue McClanahan's excellent "witch" lures two mundane children down to the underworld, where she rules over a kingdom / queendom, I guess, of Game Show obsessive people who get punishments for winning, losing -- they don't care, on with the Game Show, okay?

The premise may be a little bit tired, but the characterization is rich and the Muppets are always fresh and creative and wonderful, and Rue worked her little fanny off doing the best Witch she could, which was... substantial.

I loved it. I wish everybody could see it.
